*Active Cases are updated subsequent to campus notice. Active Cases are the number of students, faculty or staff who have tested positive, but have not yet cleared the recovery protocols identified in CDC guidance.

Regular testing continues to be an important strategy as high testing numbers continue to catch both symptomatic and asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic cases. By responding quickly and placing these individuals in isolation, the spread of COVID-19 is significantly reduced.

Peru State College is committed to ongoing testing of students, faculty and staff for COVID-19. The Center for Disease Control reports that a substantial percent of patients are asymptomatic. Consequently, testing the campus population is the best way to maintain a healthy campus and to continue our mission for an engaging, personalized education.

The College has created and gathered the following resources to help better communicate during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
